Picked up my SOP EX AWD 5 speed manual Element today. Just love that orange color. I can't believe after waiting 3 long months that it is finally sitting in my driveway. It is GORGEOUS and a blast to drive. I have only had it about 4 hours now and it barely has 20 miles on it from driving back from the dealership. The accessories come next after I schedule an appointment with service. So far I have decided on the front air deflector, keyless entry, side steps, backseat bungees, skylite shade, bumper trim and mudflaps. I guess I did ok in the final price, not too dissapointed in the monthly payments. I want a roof rack but still not sure whether to go factory or aftermarket. ( I have a Thule roof box I hope will work on factory rack ).
I am so happy though that I waited. I got exactly what I wanted. I am generally pretty impulsive but the wait was worth it for the feeling I have now. I just might sleep in it tonite.

I'm starting the search tomorrow for my new Element. Going to try Tysons, Brown and maybe even Fairfax to see who will give me the best deal...hoping to find one by the end of June.[/quote:cd90779ef6]
No, I didn't go through Browns but if you would like to e-mail me personally I can tell you where I got my Element. I am EXTREMELY happy where I purchased it. Low key, no pressure and good service record. I ordered mine and it was well worth the wait to get it from a reccommended dealer.
